Giant 1,000-foot-high tsunamis seen as a threat to Hawaii
OurAmazingPlanet
updated 1 hour 34 minutes ago

SAN FRANCISCO — It's almost unimaginable: a tsunami more than 1,000 feet (300 meters) high bearing down on the island of Hawaii.

But scientists have new evidence of these monster waves, called megatsunamis, doing just that.

Unlike tsunamis from earthquakes, the Hawaiian tsunamis strike when the island chain's massive volcanoes collapse in humongous landslides. This happens about every 100,000 years, and is linked to climate change, said Gary McMurtry, a professor at the University of Hawaii in Honolulu.

The giant landslides seem to happen during periods of rising sea levels, when the climate is also warmer and wetter, Hildenbrand told OurAmazingPlanet. Researchers speculate that the change from lower sea level to higher may destabilize a volcanic island's flanks, and heavier rains could soak its steep slopes, helping trigger landslides.

Pffff. A 1000 foot high tsunami is seen as a threat?!? Hawaiians must be fuckin pussies...

I once surfed a 1,000,000,000 meter high wave, at night in a spacesuit. Gave the moon a high five.

I guess a 1000 foot tsunami would tend to fuck most anything up ! A 100 foot tsunami for that matter - the Japanese wave was estimated at 40 foot at it's highest and you see the damage that was done from that !

I find this interesting and counter intuative to what I would have thought.
I would think that a land slide in Hawaii would affect the North American west coast or the Asian east coast.. depending on where the slide occured. Never thought about a slide in Hawaii, affecting Hawaii in any way other than the loss of mass.

Very interesting.

I'm not a geologist, but I'm guessing, just guessing, that 1,000 foot tsunamis are a threat to more than just Hawaii.

In fact, I'm willing to bet they are a threat to everywhere except Denver and Tibet.
